Article Title: Investigation of Energy Saving Potential for a University Campus in Dubai
by Parth Anant Berde, and R. Gomathi Bhavani

Energy saving in buildings is given paramount importance today by governments all over the world because it not only saves money and also helps protect the natural resources and make a sustainable future for the upcoming generations. Intelligently planned Buildings Management System (BMS) play a vital role in creating good ergonomic conditions. BMS has become an integral part of all modern constructions and help in continuous monitoring of physical conditions of a building so as to effectively maximize occupant comfort with minimal energy consumption. The crux of BMS lies in turning off equipment when theres no occupancy, and this denotes a tremendous savings capacity, as demonstrated in this paper. This paper aims at highlighting the advantages of BMS and its energy saving potential for a University campus in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. As found in this paper, the saving potential of any BMS, in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), is really significant and if implemented, it can pave the way for a sustainable future. The payback period of installing BMS is also estimated and provides an idea of when the savings will outweigh the initial costs of installation of BMS.
